Hello everyone, my name is Mike and I am a newcomer to the violin. I have been playing for about a week now, and soon I will post a video for everyone to critique on my progress so far.

I already have background in music as I have been playing several different instruments since the age of 8, and can read all clefs and even compose sometimes. I hope that my experiences with the violin will be enjoyable, as thoroughly so as my other instruments.

I was born in California May 30 1988,  and 2 years ago I moved out here to Alabama due to a long story and stressful living situation.

 

At any rate, I am happy to join a community of musicians, and hope to improve my skills well off enough to play with all of you!

 

-Mike

Wlecome to the party, man.  I am thrilled to have another noob in the house.  I too am a noon. (I only recieved my violin the 18th of June) Sometimes I feel lost and overwhelmed, but I have to admit, the members on here make it fun as well as educational.  So, again, welcome and enjoy!!

Just to let ya know, Fiddlerman is doing a YouTube Project on Bile 'Em Cabbage Down.  I have been playing 5 days and I am already really interested in participating.  It is really cool.  If ya haven't watched his last project, He's a Pirate, watch it and see what you have to look forward too.

Here's the Link for "He's a Pirate":

and here is the Link for "Bile 'Em Cabbage Down":

This'll be my first time joinging the project, but it look like a lot of fun.  Give it a whirl, can't anyone be worse than me. lolbanana
